Ian Bremmer calls his big idea "G-Zero." Here's how he described it in an essay last year:

We are now living in a G-Zero world, one in which no single country or bloc of countries has the political and economic leverage — or the will — to drive a truly international agenda.

On today's show, we take a world tour with Bremmer to find out who thrives and who struggles in a G-Zero world.

Bremmer is the president of Eurasia Group and author of a new book called Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World. For more, listen to our G-Zero podcast from last year.
